Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

431. A Parting Hymn We Sing

1 A parting hymn we sing
around your table, Lord;
again our grateful tribute bring,
our solemn vows record.

2 Here have we seen your face,
and felt your presence here;
so may the savor of your grace
in word and life appear.

3 We're purchased by your blood,
by sin no longer led,
the path our dear Redeemer trod
may we rejoicing tread.

4 In self-forgetting love
be our communion shown,
until we join the church above,
and know as we are known.
